I did a good yoga class last night at Goodlife of all places. Yeah, I was a bit surprised too.
Ever since I started teaching mind-body stuff, I’m way more aware of the cues given in classes. Some folks might not realize but they make a big difference in the outcome, especially for subtle change like what is needed in yoga and ChiRunning.
He had some great cues, mostly to do with being a warrior. He worked it into the theme, he had a great delivery and it worked for me. He talked about being tall and proud like a warrior. He also carried it over to the stretching with emphasis on length and relaxed movement, similar to loading a bow with arrow. Cool stuff.
I find a lot could transfer to running as a lot of imagery was similar to ChiRunning. It’s always good to keep some cues in mind when you’re running. It gives you focus and a reference point without interrupting your run. So be tall and proud. And just fall to the finish line!
I don’t know his name but it looks like I will be back so I can get my Yoga Warrior on!
